The University of Toronto is once again earning itself top marks.

The school has been ranked as the best in Canada in five broad fields of study, including Arts and Humanities, Engineering and Technology, and Life Sciences and Medicine.

The institution also took first place in the country in Natural Sciences and Social Sciences and Management.

The “World University Rankings by Subject 2021” were released on March 4 by London-based analytics firm Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).

The annual list is intended to help prospective students identify the leading universities in a particular subject.

When QS divided the five fields into specific subject areas, such as architecture and nursing, U of T ranked first in Canada in 30 out of 48 disciplines.

Accounting and finance, anthropology, and chemical engineering are just some of the subjects where U of T shines.

“This latest international subject ranking reflects the University of Toronto’s strength across a wide array of disciplines, from the humanities and social sciences to medicine and engineering,” said Meric Gertler, the President of U of T, in a release.

“It is also a testament to our unyielding commitment to research, innovation, and academic excellence.”

Internationally, U of T ranked in the top 50 for 46 subjects, and in the top 10 for seven disciplines.

Notably, the school ranked third in the world for education, and fourth for library and information management.

U of T is no stranger to accolades. Last year, the school was ranked as the best university in Canada, and among the top 25 in the world.
